My Everyday Carry

Editor’s Note: Hi James, while I should clarify that you most likely do not carry a full-sized knife sharpener with you everywhere, I wanted to showcase your EDC as a reminder to new knife owners that keeping an EDC knife sharp will eventually be something to think about. The Spyderco Sharpmaker is easy to use and yields good results for touch ups and general maintenance — which is important, because a sharp knife is safer than a dull and unpredictable one. Aside from that, I see you have some nice choices in your Leafstorm, classic G-Shock and Led Lenser flashlight. I have the Leafstorm myself and while it’s a great ‘little big knife’ I think it gets outclassed by more comfortable, newer models in the Chaparral and Techno, both of which feature Titanium and a premium steel as well. An interesting thing about the Led Lenser to note is that it’s one of the few flashlights that can adjust its beam profile through focusing optics — meaning it can ‘throw’ a beam far away or be used up close with a diffuse, wide, floody beam. Lastly, while your core items look good, I would suggest upgrading that Sharpie pen with the broken pocket clip to a more sturdy Stainless Steel variety, like this one. Thanks for sharing!

Trayvax Black Element Wallet

An interesting thing happened when we featured the Trayvax Axis a while back—we found that our readers who carry one are exceptionally happy with Trayvax and all their wallets. So when we heard Trayvax made updates to their flagship Element wallet, we had to take a look.

The new Element comes with all the features of the original. Top-grain, oil-tanned leather make up its main enclosure, and secures onto the stainless steel skeleton with mil-spec 550 paracord. The frame now comes in a much-requested black colorway, with a Cerakote finish that improves durability and RFID protection. The Element is sized for EDC at 4.5”x2.8”x0.5”, and designed to carry 3-10 cards and 1-5 folded bills either in your pocket or off a lanyard.

The black version of the Element is made in the USA and comes in Mississippi Mud (dark brown), Tobaco Brown, and Canyon Red leather (pictured above). If you want a rugged wallet that both carries minimally and ages elegantly, pick one up direct from Trayvax at the link below.
